Brock University: A Student's Guide To Studying Effectively

Studying can often feel overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Studying at Brock University can be fun and rewarding. Here are a few tips that may help.

Be prepared for your study time

During class, we have a habit of thinking we can remember when an assignment is due or 19something we need to consider for an exam. But if you take the time and write these things down, you’ll be more likely to have an effective study time outside of the classroom. Know what you’ll be working on and make sure you have any material you may need.

No distractions 

As a university student, you are probably bombarded with two million things craving your attention; however, you have to learn to say no. Turn off that phone, exit out of social media, and get to work. If you have to use digital tools such as your computer for your work, be mindful of that temptation to slack off.

Use the Pomodoro technique

If you find yourself easily distracted or you don’t want to sit at your desk for two hours straight, you’re in luck. Time yourself for 20-25 minutes and work on whatever needs to get done; when that time is up, take a break for five minutes and start all over again. This is especially useful if you have a large project that takes up a huge chunk of your time.

Stay organized 

It is extremely easy for students to get cluttered and disorganized, which is probably why they don’t get a lot done as a general rule. If you take the time before and after studying to clean up your work area, you’ll find yourself working a lot quicker. Who wants to spend ten minutes digging around in a desk drawer for a writing utensil?
